The two were later identified as Mohommod Hassin Nawaz, 29, and Hamza Nawaz, 22, of the same address in Dirleton Road, Stratford, East London.
London’s Metropolitan Police said Tuesday a 22-year-old and a 29-year-old — both British citizens — were arrested a day earlier by Kent police. It said the pair had arrived at the Dover from Calais, France. They are being questioned at a London police station.
